George Hickenlooper Worried That Death Would Be Very Boring

George Hickenlooper Worried That Death Would Be Very Boring

I hope this blog isn’t seeming too bleak lately as I continue to indulge my morbid side by showcasing documentary appearances made by the recently deceased. I was honestly going to give George Hickenlooper a pass, partly because it’s been a few days since the indie filmmaker’s sudden death over the weekend. But then I was re-watching a promotional clip of the director from Morgan Spurlock’s recent documentary TV special “Committed: The Toronto International Film Festival” (which re-airs on AMC tomorrow morning at 9:30am EST), and he actually talks about death. This was less than two months ago. While he’s getting his hair done in preparation for his premiere of “Casino Jack,” he brings up his age (he says 46, yet he apparently turned 47 in May) and wonders where the time went. The hairdresser tells him to just enjoy life, and he says he will, because he worries that “death will be very boring.”

For his sake, let’s hope it’s not and that he’s enjoying doing things he loves in peace wherever he may be.

Watch that retrospectively tragic clip after the jump. And check out “Committed” on AMC.
